So I showed my sister my ladybug kit I was working on. She said she want her. I replied, you don’t want her, she’s 400.00. She said she would put her on layaway. I sent her another picture last night n she still wants her. I gave my daughter 2 dolls free. I sent my sisters daughter n granddaughter a free baby. I feel bad about selling her for 400.00 to my sister. I planned to list her on reborns. So I’m thinking about selling ladybug to my sister for 300.00. I definitely don’t just wanna give her away. What do you all think I should do?
Thats hard…I don’t know what I would do…maybe just explain that you would rather sell that one and maybe she could buy another kit and you could make her one?
She said she was waiting for me to make a toddler. I showed her 7month June. I’m doing her next. But she would cost just as much as ladybug. She wants s bigger than newborn doll.
It’s because you paint her so beautifully!
Awe, thank you
Maybe charge for cost of kit and supplies???
I wouldn’t know what to charge for supplies.
I understand. My oldest daughter insisted that she pay for hers, she did a layaway type of thing too. She knows her sisters didn’t pay like she did but she said she understands what goes into it and wanted to help me out. So she knew I wouldn’t take money outright so she gifted it to me for any holiday that came around, lol. I think you should give it to her at the price you two agree on. She wants to contribute to your Art so let her gift you as she wants. I always remind people that it is not always about you. she wants to feel great giving you this gift so let her .
Both my niece and my sister painted they are dolls with my help when visited me . The kits were gifts from me .
You may charge her for all the supplies and a bit for electricity . Tell her if she needs mire dolls then she can buy everything and she can paint with you or you will need to charge her for your time as well .
I might be in minority here, but I would gift her to your sister if you are in a good relationship. She is your sister after all. And if she wants to pay for her, I would consider that as a gift from her to you also. Everything should be voluntarily and not like a business transaction. But that just me.
I say let her pay you. You’ve already given 2 free dolls to her daughter and granddaughter. I like that she thinks she should pay you. She’d have to pay for it from anybody else.
f she was newborn size I wouldn’t mind giving it to her for free. But, she is bigger n took longer to make. I would like to sell her n get the price I want. Others family members have told me they want one. If I give it to my sister, then the others may expect a free doll. I’m gonna tell my sister I will lower the price for her. I feel bad charging her 400.00
I wish we could paint together. She lives in Maryland n I’m in Ohio.
OK, then $399.00, lol. My daughter said give her her joy!
, I’m thinking 200-250.
Oh no . My sister is in Transylvania , Romania . I am in Vancouver Canada .
We painted when they are visited also las summer when I visited them .
You should probably consider shipping costs, too.
I’m actually going to Maryland for the 4th of July. So I will take her with me on the plane. My sister wanted to do a family get together for the holiday. Seems we only get together for funerals.
You probably use air dry, I use heatset. It would be too much to carry a Nuwave oven with me. I do have some golden air dry paints I wanna try again soon.
She is going to be fun to carry on the plane, I hope you whip up a planefull of business cards. I’ll bet your Toddler will be the favorite child on that plane, lol!
